Margarita Cupcakes Gluten Free

I like celebrating anytime,  and in honor of Cinco de Mayo, I thought a Margarita would do the trick; not just a Margarita drink but a cupcake!!

You will not believe how good this cupcake is.  The best way to tell how good one of my gluten free recipes is?  Have my dad, of the major sweet tooth, try it. If he asks if the sweet is legal, that is gluten free, I KNOW the taste is spectacular.
